Due Tour Husband
(Women's Fortnightly Journal.)
"No wonder he left her. I don't
blame him. Look at her pimply
face." These words grated on me
when I overheard them on a street
car, but I soon found myself ab
sorbed In mentally weighing both
sides of this little every day ques
tion. Possibly the husband abhorred
an ugly complexion, and his wife
made so effort to get rid of It
Possibilities, pro and con, occurred
to me, bat I wound up all my con
jectures with the firm conviction
that a wife owes It to her husband
to look as attractive as possible.
All women long for a good com- 4
plexlon, but many go about getting
It wrongly and really Injure their
faces by using promiscuous cold
creams and lotions, when what
they need is a real specific The

Wrinkles at Home
(From Btage Review.)
Pbyalclan are always "harping
way" on the care of the body, and if
a woman aaks them why ber faco is
wrinkled, he answers "Pooh," and
hurries away In quest of a fever or
an appendix. But a woman regards
a new wrinkle in her face as quite
a serious matter. Mere men and
inere physicians do not realise the
importance of a non-wrinkled face,
c the woman proudly conceals her
feellnn and foes stealthily to work
to find a remedy on her own account.
And here Is where she encounters
many pltfa.Ua. She makes the mis
take of buying the most expansive
article on the market, purported and
ztenclvely advertised to cure wrink
les. Or alse she picks out the one
